Saltmarsh/mudflat stabilisation

Engineering activities

Activity and function

Potential hydromorphological change

Mitigation measures

Brushwood fencing or other wave breaks / sediment recharge

Protection of saltmarsh edge from wave erosion, stabilisation of sediment, enhancing sediment deposition and vegetation growth on cohesive sedimentary shores

Change in sedimentary regime (TraC)

Manage and Restore the Intertidal Zone

Good Practice Sediment Management
